'Breaking Bad' - 'Sunset' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 26th 2010 12:03AM
(S03E06) The word "pivotal" doesn't even begin to describe this episode. When it was over, I let out a "Jimmy H. Carter!" so loud that it freaked out my fiancee -- imagine another name with the initials "J.C." instead of "Jimmy Carter" and you'll get the idea.

'Breaking Bad' - 'Green Light' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 12th 2010 12:01AM
Bryan Cranston in 'Breaking Bad' - 'Green Light'(S03E04) Even on cable shows that are tightly plotted because of their short seasons, there are sometimes episodes that feel more like they're setting things up for the episodes to come rather than pushing the story arc forward. This week felt like one of those episodes.

I wouldn't classify it as a "throat-clearing" kind of episode, because, even when treading water, 'Breaking Bad' still retains its intensity and sense of drama. But after the first three rollicking episodes, it was interesting to see the show take an hour to collect its thoughts and linger for a little while.

Breaking Bad: Negro y Azul

Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad(S02E07) The episode opened with a video by Mexican cousins Los Cuates de Sinaloa; the song is our episode title. It looks like the boys were hired to pen a tune that explains exactly what is going on in the drug community now that White and Pinkman are peddling their blue meth. The video is produced like something you'd see on Latin MTV (sort of) in Spanish with English subtitles. It also goes on to tell us that White, as "Heisenberg," has gained notoriety of the not-so-great sort in the drug cartel world further south. It was a unique if strange way to open the episode, as well as provide exposition on White's growing infamy.

As for Walt, one of the benefits of his newfound career in drugs is that he's a much more aggressive taskmaster in the classroom. No more timid Mr. White; Walt's apparently becoming a badass in all walks of his life. Or at least much bolder than he was. Meanwhile. Jesse is finding out that it's a lot tougher to be the badass everyone thinks he is when he doesn't have the self-confidence to be as hardcore as his image.

Breaking Bad: Seven Thirty-Seven (season premiere)

Breaking Bad Cast
(S02E01)
Three hundred and sixty-four days after the first season finale, the second season of Breaking Bad finally began last night (Damn you, writers strike!). While we only got seven episodes last year, the show still made a huge impact on the television landscape, primarily by being just amazingly produced and acted. The action and tone pick up here as if we've never been away, and despite a year since new episodes, it feels like only last week that we first saw Tuco go ballistic and viciously beat his own man.

Of course, if it had been last week then I doubt we'd have rewound the scene and replayed it in its entirety. Still, it was a nice reminder of just how crazy and unpredictable Tuco is. And it was the problem of Tuco that pretty much drove the entirety of the main plot tonight. It says something as to how perfectly disturbed Raymond Cruz portrays Tuco that despite being in the episode only during two sequences, his presence hovered over every moment.

Cranston and Norris mix it up on Breaking Bad set - VIDEO

by Nick Zaino, posted Feb 26th 2009 6:08PM
Breaking BadBryan Cranston and Dean Norris have been on a collision course since the beginning of AMC's Breaking Bad. For the uninitiated, Cranston plays Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher with terminal lung cancer who turns to cooking meth to leave his family financially secure. Norris plays his brother-in-law Hank, who happens to be a DEA agent. Which made family get-togethers in Season One pretty interesting.

Season One pushed White's story to the brink of believability -- he took on drug dealers using chemistry in one of the most amazing scenes on television last year, and never quite found his way out of the meth trade, even as it became harder to hide from his family, including Hank. I'm curious to see how the story continues, whether they continue to push White further and further out, or if he gets a break somewhere.

This fake interview on Dailymotion, supposedly taped for the show's electronic press kit, isn't quite the ultimate confrontation between White and Hank fans may have in mind. For that, you'll have to tune in to Season Two, which premiers March 8 at 10PM. But it is an amusing bit of improv between the two actors.

breaking bad
(S01E05)
This episode served as a bridge in our larger story to the next chapter of both Jesse and Walt's lives. In the previous installment, Walt withdrew from the sordid world of drug trafficking and focused on his family, revealing his cancer and looking at the varying options available to him. Meanwhile, his erstwhile partner Jesse had a bad drug reaction and sought refuge in the home of his parents, which didn't turn out as well as he had hoped. Here they both continued their efforts to move on with their lives, to varying degrees of failure.
